Beauty Steals Inward

Hi everyone and happy Monday!

I spent some time stamping this past weekend and am SO happy about that!  As an added bonus, I was stamping in a CLEAN space.  WOW... that doesn't happen very often!  I spent the better part of Saturday afternoon cleaning and whipping my stamp room back into shape.  It was beginning to get lost in piles o' stuff and I couldn't stand it any longer!  Of course when I first started to stamp, I just sat there... unsure of what to do with all the empty space on my desk... then I remembered Jen's Sketch For you to Try (SFYTT).  If you'd like to play along, see the sketch, OR see all the great cards that have already been made using the sketch click on over to her blog HERE for more details. :)

I used MFT's Triple Scoop set of the month, Clearly Sentimental about Birthdays to make my card.  You can earn this set FREE before April 7th with a qualifying order.  Click HERE for more details on that.

For the embellishment, I stacked a Heidi Swapp ghost shape and a button threaded with some twine.  I stitched it onto my card to secure it well.  The sentiment is "fan tailed" and I used red line dimensionals to keep the flag "fluffed".

I hope you all have a WONDERFUL week! 

Stamps: Clearly Sentimental about Birthdays
Ink: PTI black
Paper: Kraft, Green at heart Basic Grey, white
